Irma Veiga, 56, of Brockton, MA   passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her loved ones. She was the  daughter of the late John Lopes Martins and the late Louisa Monteiro, She was the beloved wife of the late Marcelino Veiga and loving mother to Mark Veiga, Matthew Veiga, and Liza Marie Veiga.

Irma Veiga was born in Brava, and raised in Santo Antao. Irma came from a large family of predominantly strong women; of which she took care of. She was a remarkably dedicated and hardworking woman who, for well over twenty years, was the “Irmanator” of Haemonetics. She was a woman who knew her way around the kitchen and her Lasagna and Chicken Marsala were both mouth watering and to die for. Irma was her family’s rock and foundation and an unlicensed therapist who’s straight forward advice comforted and consoled everyone.

Irma Veiga was warrior and a fighter of  Breast Cancer. Diagnosed ten years ago, she took the disease in stride, never complained , smiled through it all, and held her head high as she marched on into battle. A champion for Breast Cancer, she rallied her friends and family to donate time, money, and compassion to her fight and to others battling along with her. Even at her weakest she never complained and championed on until her last day.

In addition to her beautiful children, she is survived by her grandchildren, siblings, and many nieces and nephews.

Irma Veiga’s Memorial Service will be held at The First Church of the Nazarene 89 N Pearl St Brockton, MA 02301 at 11am.
